Should be 12v there and a good ground test with a meter. Also check the relay to make sure its operating correctly.

How to check for lose fuel pressure hyundai accent 2002

A mechanic would use a fuel pressure gauge, you could spray starting fluid or carb cleaner into the throttle body to see if it will start on that.
Also check for spark at the plugs.

When starting the car i have to keep restarting until it stays running, because it will spit & sputters

Sounds like a problem with your idle air control valve: either not functioning in response to electrical input from the ECU or inactive due to oil and dirt. Remove the IAC and clean it and passageways in the throttle body with carb choke cleaner spray and a cloth.

Starting Problem

do not i will say it again do not spray starter fluid in to the breather as you will destroy your mass air flow sensor. check or change your crank sensor and your cam sensor.. i have had the same problem and it took me like 3 months to find that out.. i have a 2000 hyundai accent and it it would start from a cold start with no problem but once it warmed up it would stall... besides the crank shaft sensor is one of the cheapest parts you can change ............

My hyundai accent '95 misses when its cold.

Comment from the FixYa Moderator Staff:

I DISAGREE with the solution provided by Eliase.

You should NEVER spray 'starting fluid' in the engine compartment.

Starting fluid contains ether, and is extremely flammable.

Usage of staring fluid to look for vacuum leaks is a potentially dangerous situation.

I respectfully request that you refrain for using starting fluid.

What you CAN use, however, is a commonly found product, namely carburetor cleaner. This chemical is less flammable, and is used very often in the automotive business. Spray the carb cleaner near the intake manifold(s) where they connect to the block. If the idle changes, you have found the area that needs attention.

I would also doubt that you have a head gasket issue.

Vehicle will not start

Put a fuel pressure guage on the test port on fuel rail. With fuel injected engines if pressure is too high or low car wont start.
Cycle key off to run (not start) you should hear the pump run a few seconds and stop.

Will not start;will crankover

Step 1. Find a OBDII scanner (OBD stands for On-Borard-Diagnostics). Find out what DTC code (or codes) are stored in the ECU (DTC = Diagnostic Trouble Code, and ECU = Engine Control Unit - it's the computer which manages engine operation).
Step 2. After you find out which code is stored in the ECU, go to and register your veh (by VIN). Afterward, you can navigate the Hyundai Service Site to find out what system is giving you problems, the diagnosis procedure and what may be needed to fix it.
Nuff said... Let me know what you find.

Accent 1.5 air fuel mixture problem

Try disconnecting the battery for a while to reset the ECU and see if that helps any. Otherwise I would start checking for vacuum leaks. You can do that by spraying a little carb cleaner around where the suspected leaks would be. If the engine rpms go up then it is burning the carb cleaner off and you have a leak. Check around the intake manifolds and throttle body as well as any air hoses around them.
